    Any general advice or suggested stores I should hit up?
    From what I hear, everything is ridiculously expensive (that probably means I should put a hold on all shopping until my trip[​IMG] ).

    Have not been to Tokyo for many years, but hear that United Arrrows/Sovereign House has a nice selection.


    Nice little store with a good selection. But good luck finding anything larger than a US36.

    I'm a 38s/9.5. Not a giant of a man by Western (or any) standards. So i'm optimistic.

    Exactly. I'm 5 foot 10 and not even close to being hefty but I found sizing a real problem. Spanked my hard-earned on accessories instead

    keep in mind, some stores will be closed for the first one, two, or three days of the new year ...

    I am 5'9" and a 36r, and I was a LARGE at Comme Ca in Shinjuku. Wanna bring me back some raw sake and Japanese whiskey? [​IMG] Oh, and cartons of Seven Star cigarettes? [​IMG] $20 a carton at the duty-free shop on your way home.

    Also, make sure to check out Harajuku for teh ladiez! They dress up like every Japanese stereotype you could imagine, wrapped into one.

    Purchase a Kirin Strong 7 from 7/11 and drink it in the streets for me!

    In Japan now.

    I suggest checking out Roppongi Hills. Was there yesterday they have the usual United Arrows plus some other interesting Jap designers.

    Also, Burberry Black Label in Ginza maybe?
